Winter Olympics

Sports Media Weekly Podcast #24- Dave Sims, Westwood One

Sports Media Weekly Thanks for checking into the latest edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.

During our news segment Ken Fang of Fang’s Bites and I once again talk about how NBC is handing its coverage of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  On the table is how the ratings and the programming choices by NBC may impact the next round of Olympics bidding for the 2014 and 2016 Games.

Ken and I also touch upon the two week  suspension by ESPN of Tony Kornheiser from his PTI gig following the remarks he made last week about Hannah Storm’s wardrobe.  Both Ken and I feel ESPN may have overreacted a bit.

Our guest this week is sportscaster Dave Sims.  Dave is famous for his radio and television play-by-play of college basketball as well as his work as the voice of Sunday Night Football on Westwood One.  Dave is also handles television ply-by-play for the Seattle Mariners.


Sports Media Weekly Podcast #23

Sports Media Weekly We have an abbreviated edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast for this week.

It’s just Ken Fang from Fangs Bites and I as we discuss the early coverage by NBC of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  Both Ken and I are disappointed that NBC is not showing more marquis events live.  Instead they are tape delaying the coverage for the prime time audience.

Ken and I also discuss how a pothole ruined the ratings for Fox at the Daytona 500.  We also speculate what will come from Tiger Woods as he is set to make a public statement this Friday.

For those of you who missed it, catch Ken and I as we talk with Kenny Mayne of ESPN in a podcast produced earlier this week.
